How far along: 39 Weeks...are you kidding me?
Due Date: August 11, 2023...at least that's what it feels like
Total weight gain: 18 pounds last time I weighed
Maternity Clothes: still the same 2 pairs, maxi dresses, a couple maxi skirts, yoga pants and my swimsuit
Stretch marks: Nope but it's probably going to be inevitable once I hit the 45th week of pregnancy which is rapidly approaching
Sleep: Eh...not terrible but not great. A lot of up and down through the night.
Miss Anything: My normal body, in particular my boobs and stomach. I'm not a fan of feeling huge anymore. I didn't mind letting my preggo belly hang out, but now I'm ready to get back my abs.
Movement: Not much...she's just messing with me at this point making me think she's going to come out. Well played, baby.
Food cravings: Ugh, I don't even really like the thought of much anything these days. When I already feel like my tight as a drum tummy is going to pop like a balloon, it's hard to be too awdul hungry.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, just not hungry in general for the most part.
Symptoms: Hugeness, Pressure, my poor old sore hips, fake contractions occasionally, back pain, general discomfort existing, tired of still being pregnant (I was warned I'd hit the wall and this week I officially did it)
Belly Button: Pretty well out there
Rings: My rings are off :(
Happy or Moody: Not gonna lie, been a real b*tch this week! I'm just so over being pregnant. I set myself up to get to this point though because I was convinced I wouldn't still be pregnant when August rolled around. I thought I'd hit 37 weeks and go any day after that if not sooner...again, well played, baby.
Pregnancy Workout: My daily walks are pretty much it these days.
Pregnancy Pet Peeve: Still being pregnant haha just kidding...sort of
Labor Signs: 3 cm and 80% at the beginning of this week, loss of mucus plug, lots of pressure low in my big ole tummy and I think the baby has dropped but I'm not really that sure. Lots of symptoms, but still no baby!
Best Moment this Week: Hoping that'll be tomorrow when we celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary! We went to St Lucia for our honeymoon so I always make a Carribean dinner, same one every year. Jerk pork chops, coconut fried shrimp, spicy rice, and coconut lime souffle.
Looking forward to: Our anniversary, which is August 4 and my birthday, which is the 7th. I LOVE birthdays, especially when they're mine:) They always mean homemade ice cream, my parents birthday specialty!!!
My nieces and nephew made me an early b-day cake :)
